Glad I procrastinate and Powerbook was delayed. I will get one of these
With my academic rate 2358 for a 500gig 24inch 3.02 4 gig memory. I must sell some safe queens...
I wouldn't be so fast to jump John... I understand very shortly there will be a 23" cinema display that has a MacBookPro docking slot built into the rear. Best part is it is a drop in and go!

Wow now that would be cool
Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
friend of mine is considering an imac 24" for photo work-any opinion of the screen-will it calibrate?
well the 20" glossy screen version I have read on the internets that it is a lower quality lcd and will not calibrate properly. So that one is out. But no one seems to have a definitive answer to the new glossy 24".
it comes down to the difference between tn and sips, which I don't understand, and that the cheaper ones are capable only of 6bit resolution, which through dither and interpolation they make up for what cannot be resolved. I am assuming the 23" cinema display is 8bit, and if the new 24" imac were 8 bit it would seem useful for photo work.
bottom line is that the imacs are consumer products, designed for dvd's and gaming, and not exactly at home in a graphics environment, despite what they get bought for.
Jack, any further word on this? Is it common knowledge and I'm the last guy to hear about it? I'd love to find out more. I think the lack of a docking solution for Apple laptops is a huge hole in their product line. I've been using Dell Latitude laptops for years - always in a dock. I have 4 docks in various places I go. My laptop to me is just a local computer that gets dropped on a dock wherever it goes. I wish Apple had a similar solution. The thought of, say, carrying a Macbook Pro back and forth to the office each day and hooking up the myriad of cables each time is pretty much a deal breaker for me. An integrated cinema display sounds like a neat idea.
